not going after their rights? the national review was told, quote, governor romney would, of course, support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life. this is the second time this year the campaign corrected their candidate on abortion. back in august, romney said abortion should be legal in several situations, including when the health of the mother is in danger. >> now, i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. >> but then his campaign walked it back, saying, quote, he doesn't support an exception to protect the health of a pregnant woman. in all this that we're seeing, is it making your head spin? well, it should. because all year mitt romney has been clearly, severely anti-choice. >> do i believe the supreme court should overturn roe v. wade? >> now romney is contradicting that because with weeks to go he badly needs the women vote. he's down 22 points in ohio, a must-win state for him. so romney decided he must run from his party's extreme view on abortion and there's so much to run from. gop legislature
spending and then when it comes to their actual programs, they don't want it cut. governor romney recently suggested if we went off the fiscal cliff and have the spending cuts in defense, that it would kill jobs in virginia. >> but that's where you need leadership from the top. and successful governors do two things well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures and they also have a strategy or a blueprint for economic growth in their state for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership in the white house. >> no president has had reorganization authority since ronald reagan lost in the 1980's, when it expired. i think there needs to come back. i would put back some type of entitlement authority that was lost after the nixon era. the subcommittees in congress are not very good managers of certain things. so there has to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and structure of the government we have in place. this government functions on a 19th century organization model despite the availability of 21st centu

performance. mitt romney, being a former governor of massachusetts, is very unpopular in the state. most polls have showed him lagging obama by a huge margin. this poll shows up he has made some ground -- this poll shows he has made up some ground against obama. we can expect this race to be one of the closest in the country. host: we will talk about the senate race later with you in the program. again, our coverage tonight of the senate debate, 7:00 p.m. eastern time. senator scott brown, republican, faces off with elizabeth warren, the democratic challenger, at 7:00 p.m. eastern time, 4:00 p.m. if you are on the west coast. gopac, campaign 2012. let's begin with ohio. "the washington post," "obama and romney running hard in ohio." why ohio? caller: a republican has never won the white house without winning ohio. things never change. whenever a republican is our nominee for president, we have to win or ohio. i think governor romney is going to win ohio this year. host: both of them have been there numerous times to the president just 15 times this year, 30 times since he has taken office. tel

however that would be done by executive order that i would reinstate the -- >> governor romney would of course support legislation providing greater protection for life. and mitt romney is proudly pro-life and he will be a pro life president. >>> the obama campaign said romney's statement contradicts his pledge to appoint supreme court justices who would overturn roe v. wade. it's october and because romney looks like he has a chance to win, looks like a lot of folks are biting their tongues, postponing what could -- romney told donors in the spring said he would consider limits home mortgage deductions, he seemed to explicitly take that off the table. >> home mortgage interest deductions and charity donations would continue to be deductible expenses. >> obama called on ohio state university students to vote early. >> grab your friends, grab everybody in your dorm. grab everybody in your frat terfrat -- >> romney meanwhile seemed to lower debate expectations to a stunningly low bar for his running mate yet, take a listen. >> i don't know how paul will deal with this debate. obviousl

at 48%. john dickerson is our cbs news political director and, john, in the primaries governor romney took a hard line against abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or the health of the mother, but today he said this in the "des moines register" newspaper. then governor romney followed that with this today: . >> i think i've said time and again i'm a pro-life candidate, i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. >> pelley: so, john, i wonder, can you help us untangle all of this? >> well, this is a very tricky issue for governor romney who's about to arrive here in western ohio. he's had a number of positions on abortion. in these comments, when he was running for governor in the 1990s he said he would protect abortion rights. but now he has the opposite view. when people heard these comments to the "des moines register" they thought he was moderating his position. but if you looked at them closely, it didn't contradict anything he said in this campaign and, indeed, his subsequent remarks back that up. but governo
of differences and i support governor romney and think he will make a great president, but on foreign policy, i think there's too much agreement between the republicans and democrats. but i think the people are tired of war. when you talk to republicans or democrats now, i think it's almost universal. people want to come home from afghanistan. you know, there's such great sorrow when you think about our same police and soldiers being helped. so i've seen a great movement in recent weeks towards really wanting to come home and i don't want governor romney to think it is a good thing to appear more bellicose. i think there are more republicans and independents who don't necessarily want a president who will begin a war in syria. i think it's very important that we not express that as what we're trying to do. >> had you spoken to him privately? >> i spoke with him a couple of months ago and my swren impression when i talked with him is he has a healthy reluctance for war. i don't think he maybe comes across as bellicose as some of these speeches are. i think we have to be careful as republicans be
't want to talk about his record. it fits him perfectly. >> well, shan sean, i agree with governor romney about pbs and npr, i don't think the government should subsidize that. i think big bird is sufficiently successful and masterpiece theater, jim lehrer, they are successful. the marketplace will support them. i think the viewers will support them, as much as they support this show -- about big bird is a gold mine. i would love to have big bird. >> hey, wait a second. remember, you are on that side of the fence. you are saying that obama's using big bird -- but we all love big bird. you are right. but i must tell you-- >>> this is a president that is dealing with small things. >> the problem here that if you -- when governor romney introduced the idea of cutting off big bird's neck, he was talking about -- cutting off his neck. >> he was talking about 100% of the federal -- he was talking about 1/100th of 1%-- >>> wait a minute. >> he wants to cut taxes-- >>> raise the military-- >>> stop with the talking points. waiment wait a minute. he was say, we are going to borrow money in the nam
, gloria borger. if there was any doubt about whether or not governor romney got a bounce from that first debate, is that now gone with these latest battleground polls, particularly in ohio, where you are tonight? are we really seeing a game change here? are you seeing stuff on the ground? >> you're seeing a shift on the ground. i don't call it a game change but predebate, governor romney was down six, seven, eight, some polls had him down nine points here in ohio. our new poll tonight has him down four, 51-47, within the margin of error. statistically you have to call that a tie. you see him gaining in the suburbs, among independents. a big giant question mark here is among white women. he's still struggling there, still dealing with the blowback from that 47% remark. but when you look at the national polls, now you look at the battleground polls there's no question he got a bounce in the debate. the question is can he sustain it. >> let's look deeper at the ohio poll. as you said it shows independent suburban voters, older voters, all about evenly split. white men break for romney by a

week, mitt romney is seeing gains across the poll. governor romney is leading president obama 49-47, among likely voters and governor romney is picking up steam when it comes to women, according to the brand-new pew survey, tied with obama at 47%. that's an astonishing 18-point gain in one month among women, leading overall, 49-45. it is not just the national polls. in michigan, president obama's lead has been cut to just 3 points, within the margin of error. and obama led by 10 points in september. the same goes for the all-important state of pennsylvania. governor romney is only behind 3 point there is as well. you know where the bitter people, clinging to their guns and religion live n. wisconsin, the president obama lead shrunk by 5 points, leaving governor romney in striking distance there. today, because of the potential to win in some of these states, states that once seemed out of reach, there are reports of the romney campaign could be shifting strategy. we will be getting additional polls to show romney with an edge in ohio with a small margin, virginia and florida. we

and ann romney, another change from governor romney. he was in des moines, your home state, and in an interview with "the des moines register" he said there's no legislation with regards to abortion that's familiar with that he would allow to become a part of his agenda. that is a big surprise to conservatives as i understand it because that is completely different than what he said in the primary and within a short period of time andrea salt his spokesperson came out and contradicted mitt romney saying that, in fact, he would support legislation, that mitt romney's pro-life and would be pro-life president. what is going on in your conservative head right now? >> well, tamron, running out of fingers and toes to count the different positions on the saktty of life mitt romney has taken in the political career, he's essentially -- might be the only politician alive in america today who has taken every conceivable position on what has been really, if you look at the american political fault line, roe versus wade is why we have the fault lines we do today. it turns the republica

freedom for all to degrade obama. governor romney was inspired by the memory of meeting glenn dougherty and shared his story in that memory. but we respect the wishes of mrs. doherty. he started telling the tales last week. >> chris died for them to be able to protest. >> reporter: jawhoton said one the last things my husband said to me when he was killed, i would ask him what do you need over there, he said i need a new president. the heart wrenching stories have been a departure from romney's focus on the economy. >> my whole passion is about helping the american people who are struggling right now. >> i thought, wow, here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? >> reporter: but democrats including bill clinton say romney has been trying to shift back to the center ever since last week's debate. the obama campaign is pointing to what romney said to "the des moines register" on the issue of abortion. >> there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> reporter: contrast that with what he said at a town hall last year. >> w

to colorado, people here care about issues and clear contrasts of governor romney and president obama. we have a diverse state coming to the geography. eastern plains growing the foods and we have the mountains and canyons to the west of the front range. you say the same thing in every area of colorado to serve the state. i didn't hear that from governor romney. i'm not sure which governor romney showed up last week but shaken the etch-a-sketch and next couple of weeks americans have a clear contrast of president and governor romney and the positions that governor romney's taken over the last couple of years. you need somebody who's consistent as president. >> senator, i love colorado but i want to talk about the senate for a moment. >> yes. >> we can't truly talk about the story of this presidency without talking about gop obstruction and how people who say that the president's been ineffectual won't understand a situation of one party saying we refuse to work with you on anything of a jobs bill to who's the po postmaster general. can you talk about how obstruction works and how it has affect
that. looks like governor romney who performed beautifully in that debate is -- has seen a surge as a result. i mean, we are, you know, these things ebb and flow and pushing up against another big night for both campaigns. i think that vice president biden will do well. i think that paul ryan will do well also. but i think that the issue here is you have to remember whether for mitt romney's own gaffes or whether the media built up president obama's some figure who is going to do extremely well in this campaign and wipe the floor with mitt romney, it already set the bar so high for president obama he fell very flat. didn't come close to the bar. we have an issue paul ryan is thought to be this wonky nerd and when he comes out, if he can perform even half as well as mitt romney, they are overestimated or underestimating congressman ryan, i would say if they think he will come out and just throw out a bunch of numbers and stats and not put any hard or skin in the game so to speak. he has won a congressional district because he can relate to people. i think we are going to see some
